Join Scott Pagano for an in-depth discussion in this video Modify attributes on frame constraints, part of Houdini 15.5: Dynamics and Simulation.
- [Instructor] Now that we've set up our custom strength…attributes on the shell constraint network,…we're going to do the same thing on the frame.…So, what we can do here, again, another awesome…thing about Houdini is that I'm going to go in to my shell.…This network here which was the network…we built to do the custom constraint coloring.…And then turning that into the strength attribute,…first thing, I'm going to select these nodes,…hit the C key and I'm going to make these light yellow…just so we can see that network nicely.…I'm going to select these, I'm going to copy them.…
I'm going to go out and I'm going to go into the frame.…I'm going to make space between that constraint attribs…node in this add_object_name_prefix nodes.…Same thing here.…Paste those nodes in, they'll automatically get…wired into color one.…And let's take a look at this here.…So, we're doing the same sort of thing.…This is our constraint network for our shelves.…And now here, if I hit the bottom group, of course,…it's going to pick random points all over the place…
